Butterfly Brilliance and Lovely You for #GDP285


Today I'm sharing cards inspired by this week's Global Design Project Color Challenge #GDP285.  I enjoyed playing with the colour combination of So Saffron, Seaside Spray and Sahara Sand - they're very calming and I love how this card turned out. 
As always the Design Team have given us lots of inspiration.
There are so many gorgeous elements to this card, especially the butterflies heat embossed in gold and the vellum embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. Did you know that shimmery card is a good alternative to watercolour paper?  I love using one of our new Water Painters to colour the butterflies using So Saffron, Seaside Spray and Sahara Sand. I don't have any Sahara Sand card for the sentiment so made my own using a scrap of Basic White and an ink pad . You can watch how I did it in the video below.
